Using Adobe Bridge to re-process 2007 HDR Landscapes! – How We Shot It

Having been a digital photographer for a decade now, one of my favorite things to do is to re-open old images with the latest and greatest post-processing tools available today. Here is an example of an image from 2007, which means I first processed it in Adobe Bridge CS, or CS2, using the original 2003 “Process Version”. This version has been re-processed in Bridge CS6, using the 2012 Process Version and the SLR Lounge Preset System for Adobe Camera Raw. Enjoy!

How To Create An HDR Image Using Simple Photoshop Layering

Most of today’s latest and greatest cameras have incredible amounts of dynamic range, however that doesn’t mean you should just go blasting away at your shadows with recovery sliders and brushes. The best image quality from a camera still comes from proper exposures. So if you have a scene that is almost manageable within a single capture, but you’d still like to reduce noise in shadow areas or improve your highlight preservation, you can do so without having to set up more than just two photos with separate exposures.
